Frequently Asked Questions

Got questions? We've got answers. If you have some other questions, contact us.

Is Melding really just for charities and social enterprises?

Right now, yes. We're focused on supporting the thousands of charities and social enterprises across the UK that are struggling to get a grip on their Diversity and Inclusion strategy. Our experts are well-versed in providing this support in the impact and service delivery context and supporting employees and volunteers.

What size of charity or social enterprise is Melding best suited for?

Melding works best for organisations with at least 15 involved, inclusive of employees, volunteers and other key stakeholders. Our survey insights can get granular, and we want to ensure we have enough data points to truly result in good information.

How customisable is the support Melding offers?

No one organisational journey is the same, so we have built our process to ensure best practice while also recognising the need for customisation where it matters. If you have a specific customisation query, please contact us.

Do you offer anything "off menu" for existing members?

We have an incredible group of experts who are capable of much more than is on offer through the Melding process. If you want something more in-depth, email us to kickstart a discussion.

What stage of the D&I journey should we be on for the Melding process to be useful?

If you are facing confusion about your next steps, the Melding process is right for you. You could think of the Melding process as a reset button or as the thing that will help you springboard to the next level of your journey.

When can our staff and volunteers start accessing D&I training?

Your people (employees, volunteers and other key stakeholders) can start accessing training as soon as you become a member and have completed the onboarding process with your account manager.

What can we do if we are not a charity or social enterprise?

We're moving quick, so get in touch with us, and we'll add you to our waitlist. Also, we'd love to speak with you to learn which services you need so we can build them in advance.

What is the connection to Do it Now Now?

Melding is a Do it Now Now initiative. This means that the work we deliver is based on the research and expertise of the award-winning racial justice organisation.
